Brexit Woes Push Crude Oil Futures Lower on Tuesday


Oil futures continued their fall on Monday as traders dealt with another day of market volatility while determining the consequences of the Brexit referendum vote, according to Bloomberg MarketWatch.

August West Texas Intermediate crude fell $1.31, or 2.8%, to end trading at $46.33 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

August Brent crude, the global benchmark, shed $1.25, or 2.6%, to settle at $47.16 a barrel on the London ICE Futures Exchange.
